Not long ago, we raved about Cargotecture’s  ingenius cargo dwellings. Last week, the NY Times  wrote about another cargo master, Adam Khalkin , who unveiled his new Push Button House at this week’s Art Basel Miami Beach .
The Push Button house is a single cargo container with motorized doors that open at the push of a button to reveal a plush interior. Khalkin has also designed a 3-bedroom house with five cargo containers called the Quik House  and a mini version called the A-Pod. His own house is made of twelve cargo containers in an airport hangar shell (see below).
Thanks, Geoff !
